Shame Being Known and Loved (31 Day Devotionals for Life) by Esther Liu
Your Savior willingly sacrificed everything—even died—so that shame would not have the final say in your life. Writing as a biblical counselor and fellow struggler, Esther Liu takes you on a thirty-one-day journey to discover lasting comfort. As you explore the depths of God’s grace for you, use this book’s practical action points, reflection questions, and devotional insights to reshape your instinctive responses to God, others, and yourself.
In the 31-Day Devotionals for Life series, biblical counselors and Bible teachers guide you through Scripture passages that speak to specific situations or struggles, helping you to apply God’s Word to your life in practical ways day after day.
